YMCA PARKINSON’S PROGRAM

The Westport Weston Family YMCA is proud to announce we have teamed up with Shakers Anonymous and Rock Steady Boxing to offer an extensive program to support those in our community living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). The Parkinson’s Body and Mind Program will provide a comprehensive exercise and wellness program in addition to support groups for people with Parkinson’s Disease and their care partners.

We provide a community that unites people with PD by providing certified trainers and therapists for therapeutic, safe exercise and wellness programs. This is a form of neuro rehabilitation to help people with PD manage their symptoms while maintaining a positive attitude through support groups that share promising research and provide networking to help navigate a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis and live the best life possible with PD.

Classes are open to all persons with PD regardless of mobility level.

REDUCE SYMPTOMS, SHARPEN YOUR MIND, AND STAY CONNECTED
